Collaborate, work or learn with IVE

The Strategic Principles guiding IVE services and operations are to Discover, Collaborate and Educate through research:

  • Discover: Explore challenging ideas that produce innovative industry-focused research that is measured against the world’s best.
  • Collaborate: Develop and grow our partnerships such that our research delivers valued outcomes for industry and society.
  • Educate: Develop the next generation of world-leading researchers and inspire the next generation of emerging talent.

IVE welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with industry, academia, and students, and we invite you to explore the different collaboration opportunities below.

    Industry

    IVE offers a variety of industry engagement and partnership options. Introductory engagements, such as providing student industry projects or co-investing with IVE in the development of proof of concept solutions, offer an organisation the opportunity to experience the value of engaging with quality research talent with minimal investment. Beyond introductory engagement many organisations choose to partner with IVE in joint, collaborative research and development projects that aim to solve challenging technical problems that lead to new and enhanced products and services that our partners may wish to commercialise. Partners of IVE have access to world-leading researchers, whose knowledge of current and emerging technologies offers valuable insights that help inform their product development roadmaps.

    IVE brings together leading research in AR and VR technologies and their application to solve real-world challenges. We know how to combine our research expertise and assets in unique and tailored ways to ensure the outcomes we deliver are focused on your needs. We invite you to reach out and explore the opportunities for your organisation by partnering with IVE.

    “Saab Australia has enjoyed a productive relationship with UniSA’s IVE for several years through the development and support of student projects that involve AR/VR technology.  

    In 2020, this relationship grew to include participation in research that has won funding to explore advanced concepts in visualising machine learning outcomes.”

    Researchers from the Australian Research Centre for Interactive and Virtual Environments (IVE) at the University of South Australia are collaborating with Sarah Constructions to develop an automated system to more accurately and easily detect building defects using Augmented Reality (AR). Seeing the motivated and driven approach from the IVE team has been fantastic, and we believe they are in a prime position to develop a system that disrupts the traditional workflow of defect management. We look forward to continuing the shared passion for making a difference in the industry.

    Dr Feeney’s project has effectively taken us to another realm of surface finish and small feature height accuracy. Using a mono crystal diamond cutting tool, we’ve reduced the surface roughness to 7nm Sa and machine features ten times smaller than we’ve previously achieved. It’s been a steep learning curve within a short time frame, but the results are transformational. ANFF-SA can now machine other devices requiring ultra-precision finishes in-house, such as micro injection moulds, instead of ordering them from overseas, significantly reducing iteration and prototyping times for our clients.

    The in-depth and extensive knowledge and experience of the Empathic Computing Lab (ECL) team is pivotal to the success of this project. Mark, Gun, and their team bring research and technical acumen together to conceive, test, iterate and deliver innovative technology solutions. Technology such as AR, VR, and virtual tours have the ability to solve some of the big challenges we face in society, and this is evidenced in the research being conducted at the ECL.
